3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. #12487. Courtesy of tiong.
Black colour with a small tan head.
Bell pepper (or any vegetable resembling the bell pepper) and roasted malt in the aroma. Mild spiciness and roasted malt in the flavour. I was expecting a chili fiesta but this was quite lame... Pumpkin I couldn’t find at all. But as an Imperial Stout it was quite OK. 11.6% was nicely hidden.

Bottle. Black with a small head. Slightly hot and rather powerful as you would expect from its strength. What I di find amazing is that this is from Spain.

Oscura, con una fina capa de espuma marrón que desaparece rápidamente. Aroma a torrefacto y licor. Poco gas y sin mucho cuerpo. En boca presencia destacada de la barrica, chocolate y recuerdos del picante. No hay indicios de la supuesta calabaza. Alcohol bien integrado
